Hurt Not the Earth





Colonial Gatherings 2015
Kit #1
Hurt Not the Earth
designed by Paulette Stewart, Plum Street Samplers
36 count Expresso by R & R Reproductions Linen
Crescent Colors Fibers 


The day the blizzard of 2015 hit the north east, the postman delivered the first Colonial Gatherings kit for 2015:  Hurt Not the Earth.

I put aside the ornament I was stitching and immediately loaded my needle with Barn Door Red and started stitching the flowers.  The fiber colors and linen are a dream to stitch.  With it being Super Bowl weekend I had lots of stitch chair time--Miss Callie Mae was not interested in watching the game and I had the stitch chair all to myself. 



The design is two pages and I am nearing the completion of page one-minus the words.  Page two is three more flowers and the house.  The blue door on the house is awesome. 
The snow and ice have gone north and missed Music City, the wind and colder temps reminds everyone it is still winter.  It's a great time of the year to stay inside, warm yourself with hot chocolate and STITCH.
